RFC 5059, "Bootstrap Router (BSR) Mechanism for Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM)", January 2008

Source of RFC: pim (rtg)

Errata ID: 1323
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Alfred Hoenes
Date Reported: 2008-02-14
Held for Document Update by: Adrian Farrel
Date Held: 2011-08-05

Section 4.1, pg.28 says:

   BSR Address
        The address of the bootstrap router for the domain.  The format
        for this address is given in the Encoded-Unicast address in [1].

It should say:

   BSR Address
        The address of the bootstrap router for the domain.  The format
|       for this address is given in the Encoded-Unicast address format
|       defined in [1] and restated in Section 4.

Notes:

Note: This Erratum was updated by the AD from the original proposal. The original suggested replacing the reference to [1] with a reference to Section 4. The resolution includes both references.

The notes below were updated to be consistent with this change.

======

The above quotation is at the bottom of page 28.
Further instances of the same issue are enumerated at the end of these Notes.

Rationale:

In Section 4, on page 24, the RFC purposely restates the terms
"Encoded-Unicast format" and "Encoded-Group format" from [1] and
continues:

We repeat these here to aid readability.

---- End of Rationale ----

This issue recurs four more times, and similar changes
should be applied:

o on page 29, in the first item, "Group Address 1..n",

o on page 29, in the 4th item, "RP address 1..m"
(subject to preceding Erratum),

as well as in Section 4.2:

o on page 32, in the 3rd item, "RP Address", and

o on page 32, in the 4th item, "Group Address-1..n"
(Note that the hyphen above also should be a blank, for consistency.)
